But that’s the difference between guys within the Church and what you see on TV or the internet; we can control our desires and are not obsessed with sex or the physical side of things.
I am not asking you to commit to a relationship or to marry me when I ask you on a date.
I find you attractive, and I am asking you on a date because I want to get to know you better. I can’t tell you how many times I have asked a girl on a date only to get the reply, “I am too busy with school.
I don’t have time to date.” We understand you’re busy.
After writing “8 Things Single LDS Girls Wish Boys Understood,” guys started coming out of the woodworks from my ward, former mission, as well as random people on Facebook.
They all asked me, “when will you tell our side of the story?
”So I started talking with them, trying to figure out what they wished women knew. A lot of LDS guys’ feelings are mutual: though we strive to honor the priesthood, we serve the Lord through church callings or missions, and we are trying to become the husbands and fathers our patriarchal blessings encourage to become. I jokingly say 95% of guys give the other 5% of us a bad name.
But sometimes, I feel like this is true, even within the Church.
And even then, I’m sure the majority of guys are trying, but everyone can get nervous, say something stupid, or have a bad day, especially when a cute girl is nearby.
So, let me give you a glimpse into how many LDS guys feel.
